In Hinduism

Natyashastra (theatrics and dramaturgy)

Source: Wisdom Library: Saṅgītaśiromaṇi

Tiripa (तिरिप, “flurry”) refers to one of the fifteen aspects of gamaka (embellishments, ornamentation) that are used in Indian classical music (gāndharva), according to the Saṅgītaśiromaṇi 14.83-94. These gamakas refer to essential elements of the sthāyas (technical phrases) of rāgas (melodic modes). Accordingly, “when a vibration (kampa) moves in the speed of one fourth of a druta and when the notes of the basic mode (jāti) sound like a stream of water, it is considered to be a tiripa”.

Tiripa (तिरिप).—(Nokku in Tamil) “(The tiripa-gamaka refers to) playing one of the notes of a phrase with some stress” (n s r s - with the accent on the ri for example). This, particular kind of highlighting one note in a phrase seems, in general, to be more a characteristic of Carnatic music; instances of its use in the Hindustani system seem rare, relatively speaking.
